Featured Blog: FrouFrouBritches

Today I’m beginning a new feature: on Mondays I will be highlighting various blogs which may be of interest to you. We all work hard on our blogs, and sometimes a little recognition can make our day.

Tanya from FrouFrouBritches has agreed to be my guinea pig in this venture. We recently discovered that we are only one day apart in age (I’m younger…just sayin’), so I feel a certain commonality with her. She is a fairly new blogger, just nicely getting started, and she posts frequently. Please visit her blog, look around, and be sure to leave a comment!

First off, the name. Tanya has an etsy shop by the same name where she sells super cute kids’ clothing that she sews. Her adorable daughter models one of her creations here:

She also uses her sewing skills for crafty goodness, like this fun dishtowel she whipped up for Valentine’s. (I’m a sucka for ric-rac!)

The use of red in this towel isn’t just because of Valentine’s; it’s also her favorite color. She recently confessed that she has been searching for the perfect red to paint her kitchen and living with several test swatches on the wall for over a year. Happily, it appears that she has finally settled on one, because she painted her dining room this weekend. She shares her new walls and tells how she made her old frames work with the new color in yesterday’s post.

Tanya is a southern gal with a soft spot for the old days and the sound of a screen door slamming takes her back to her childhood summers. When I read her post about it, I could totally hear the creak and slam of many a door from my own childhood.

For an overview in Tanya’s own words about her and her blog, read her entry in Amanda’s Why My Blog Rocks party, appropriately titled Why My Blog Rocks. Please drop by and show Tanya some support!

Don’t forget…party here tomorrow! Please link up with your Pottery Barn re-creations, new or old. (pleaseohpleaseohplease!)
